A detectivo connected with the polico de

rob the oifice of the Union Pacific paymas
ter. I seem3 that, by pressing and threat
ening a notonous thief and penitentiary bird
named Harry Clayton with prosecution on
several different complaints, he made him
give up valuable information in his posses

been made up to go through the Union
Pacific paymaster's office that th omen en

Smythe, Jo Bradley, Tom Pendorgast, and

tho office by unlocking the door, but failed
in opening the safe. Had they succeeded,
it is said thoy would have been rewarded
with $75,000. They then determined to
forcibly open the safo at the first favoiable
opportunity, intending to procure th ser

also informed the detective that, acting on

once burglarized the office ox th Omaha
Elevator company, but got nothing, and at
tempted it a seco nd timo, when thoy thought
$1,500 were in the safo, but were scai ed
away by the watchman. lloo, Pendegrast,
Smythe, and Foster have been arrested on
the charge of burglary of th elovator office,
and Hoe has confessed all. His confession
corroborates Clayton's statement, but he
charges Clayton with originating the con
